Young bantam roo. Has this sore on the side of his head, above the eye. It is very swollen. Any idea what it is or what I should treat it with? Concerned since it is so close to the eye.

I would gather some QTips, hydrogen peroxide or Vetericyn, and some antibiotic ointment, and read some of the info in these threads, especially posts by Dawg53:
